  • Support as nominator --Benjamint 13:22, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose I would support this if only it weren't so almost perfectly camouflaged, it's not very easy to see the subject and I find that bothersome. It's a good photo and observation otherwise, there's leaf litter on the ground already near you in the middle of summer? --I'ḏOne 14:21, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Presumably then it has escaped your notice that Benjamint lives in Australia and is photographing an Australian grasshopper? That will answer your leaf litter question well enough, Face-smile.svg Maedin\talk 17:07, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • It did, I forgot, and I didn't read the page thoroughly enough I guess. ^_^' --I'ḏOne 19:45, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Not to mention that almost all native Australian trees are evergreen and shed leaves all year round, so it doesn't matter whether the photograper is in the northern or southern hemisphere or what time of year it is! Ðiliff «» (Talk) 09:20, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Support: Great EV for both articles. --Redtigerxyz Talk 15:17, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • The camouflage is nice, and I would assume that it was the point of the picture. However I'm not too excited about the harsh and flat light, and I cannot support such a low resolution picture. 1.7MP is just too small. Oppose. --Dschwen 18:23, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose Harsh lighting, head seems mildly OOF and very small res for a relatively large insect --Muhammad(talk) 21:26, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • 8/10 Support You can literally see the flash reflecting off many parts of the shell (was this taken at night?) This nomination, also, I think, is one of the nominations that feature a subject well-defined in its camouflaged environment. Gut Monk (talk) 01:44, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
